We are still working hard on this…
Painful joints, broken backs, numb legs, shaky fingers, stiff necks, … but if someone already made a dog that was not supposed to be in the story, we will move it across the room, lay it down and shake all the fleas out of its bum with its left leg even if it takes another 736 photos!
You know it’s fun when you can’t stop it!
First we spoke about a story we would like to make the animation after. We spoke about passing time, importance of it, who do we like to spend it with. Then I remembered an old Yugoslavian book (Croatian to be precise) I have, called The girl and the song, written by Slavko Mihalic and beautifully illustrated by Nives Kavuric–Kurtovic. And we went for it.
We’ve made our storyboard, the characters and two scenes. Then we went back to characters because we realized all of our female figures are flat. “Woooaah kids!! Where are the breasts??” So our hour was devoted to rolling the boobs. I even got some extra ones. Thanks!
Then much clicking which is still taking place and it might be so for a while. Then comes the translation which is already been taken over by a native English speaker Erica, my friend, mucho gracias! Then after, in der ferne, we will be doing the voice over because apparently it is how it is done and… who knows, we are only learning.
